365 Cards Day 130, Colour Create & Unscripted Sketches

This fun card was made using a book of free papers that came with Simply Cards & Papercrafts magazine a couple of months ago and a cute froggy decoupage that came with the issue I got in the post yesterday. 365 Cards had a challenge a couple of days ago to make a humorous card and as soon as I saw the likkle frog yesterday I knew what I was going to do with it.

This card incorporates the following challenges :-
I have used my Martha Stewart doily punch on the outside of the checked paper and the green 'ribbon' strip. The image is 4 layers and the sentiment has been handwritten.

I will be giving this card to my hubby on the 27th July as we celebrate 20 years of being together. I was very lucky at the age of 17 that the 3rd frog that I kissed turned into a prince and I have managed to hold onto him !

This is a great card. I love how you have made the border go round the corners... I haven't managed to work that one out yet! My Martha Stewart doily punch has started chewing the paper, any suggestions anyone? I've tried wax paper and foil... no luck!

I feel the same way about kissing frogs. It took a long time to find "the one" we are in our 1st year too!
Congrats!!!
